Bishop Richard Malone is co-chair of the "Haiti: One Table, Many Partners" Conference.
During the same 2011 time period that Bishop Malone was making renovations and purchasing new furniture, draperies and carpets for his new home, he cut diocese funding to Catholic Charities of Maine by $135,000, almost 20% less than the previous year (in which diocese funding was reduced by 7%).
Rev. Wresenski calls us all to see poverty in a profoundly different way, not just as destitution or oppression but as social isolation, an isolation created by all of us to the degree that we live apart from the poor.
